"...for conciseness, clarity, and the ability to offer a balanced introduction to the literary, historical, and theological dimensions of the New Testament, the volume is unrivaled.I can think of no other scholar today that I would rather have as a guide for my students as they begin their journey in understanding the New Testament."
